Monroe County is updating its Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) plan to better protect residents and property from the effects of natural and human-caused hazards and to maintain eligibility for mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

A Local Mitigation Strategy is the result of a planning process to identify natural hazards, develop strategies to reduce or eliminate the loss of life and property damage resulting from these hazards, and to educate community members about these hazards and loss reduction strategies. 

On the Monroe County LMS website you can find information about upcoming and past LMS Working Group meetings and public meetings, take a survey on hazard risk and mitigation options to inform the plan’s development, review draft documents, and learn more about the hazards that affect Monroe County. The public has until December 7 to review and submit any updates.
